Guests board a vintage passenger car built between 1919 and 1932 for a 90-minute journey through western Michigan's fields and farms. The train travels from Coopersville to Marne, where riders can disembark and watch the locomotive turn around the old-fashioned way. Each car is equipped with a restroom, and two cars are air-conditioned. The train departs Coopersville at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Wednesday and Saturday, with boarding beginning 20 minutes beforehand.

The Coopersville & Marne Railway Company

The Coopersville & Marne Railway Company whisks riders back in time aboard passenger cars from the early 1900s, a diesel locomotive built in 1952, and tracks laid in 1858. Trained volunteers dressed in period uniforms welcome passengers, who then set out on a route through scenic fields and family-owned farmlands as a soundtrack of 1800s train music plays in the background. Throughout the ride, the conductor shares stories about the train and its route, filled with glimpses of deer, wild turkeys, and eagles, as well as several flowing creeks. Upon request, passengers may join the engineer in his cab to see how the train works or perform duets of “The Ballad of Casey Jones.”

The railway company regularly hosts special events aboard its trains, including the Great Train Robbery, a Wild West¬–themed escapade with volunteers playing Jesse James, the Earp brothers, and other legendary figures. To celebrate the holidays, the company operates a Santa train where kids can meet Kris Kringle; a bunny train with a walking, talking Easter bunny; and a fall-themed ride that includes a visit to a pumpkin patch.


Children under 2 years old may ride the train for free. Children aged 2 to 12 are $8.50.
